Join us for Taste of Weaving with Joan Namkoong.
We are excited to offer our first weaving classes in the Kahilu Theatre galleries. Come and be inspired by our biennial juried exhibition, Surrounded by Water, while learning to weave.
Join us for an introduction to weaving on a loom. Learn to use a table loom that is warped and set up to weave material approximately 10-12 inches wide. Joan will show students how to throw a shuttle and pack weft evenly, while keeping edges uniform. You will finish with a one-of-a-kind creation to take home.
This class is open to all. No experience required. Looms and materials are provided.
Happy class group from a Taste of Weaving class in our studio at the Downtown Art Center in Honolulu.
Joan Namkoong has been weaving for 30 plus years and lives on the Big Island. She weaves and sells functional textiles – scarves, shawls, towels, rugs, runners and yardage for household use. Silk is her favorite thread followed by cotton. Plain weave is used most of the time on her 8-shaft Gilmore loom. She also uses a drawloom to weave complex images and patterns.
